Mini Reuben Appetizers

St. Patrick’s Day is next week! Do you fix a fun meal for your family or host a party? We usually have just family for dinner, but this year since St. Patrick’s Day is on a Saturday, we may just have to host a little party.

We are sharing some recipes with you to help you plan your St. Patrick’s Day Celebration. On Wednesday we shared Rainbow Fruit Skewers and Dip and today it’s all about appetizers and a recipe for Mini Reuben Appetizers!

We don’t typically cook Corned Beef, but since it’s a traditional St. Patrick’s Food, we wanted to add it to the menu. These little open face sandwich use Corned Beef sliced from the deli, melted Swiss Cheese and a cole slaw mixture to top them off! Doug found a package of Pepperidge Farm Rye Bread already the size and shape we needed for these Mini Reuben Appetizers, and it was actually less expensive than buying a regular loaf of rye bread.

  1. This recipe shows a 4-star rating, but I can’t figure out where that comes from. It doesn’t say how many people voted to make it 4-star, and I don’t see a way for me to vote or review the recipe. I’d like to read other people’s reviews, to see what they say … is that possible, or is this just judged to be 4-star by the recipe author him/herself?

  2. Robbie Jones says:

    How many does this serve?

    • Hi Robbie, the amount of servings will depend on the amount of corned beef you have. The bag of cole slaw will go a long way, I’d say about 20 pieces of bread.
      Happy Cooking!
